    Bradenton Princesses: On Sunday in Birmingham, England, in the final of the DFS Classic, 22-year-old 2nd-seeded # 5 Jelena Jankovic of Serbia (residence: Bradenton, Florida, home of the Bollettieri Academy), defeated the 2004 and 2005 Birmingham champ, 20-year-old top-seeded # 2 Maria Sharapova of Russia (like Jelena a Bollettieri grad, with residences in California & Bradenton, Florida), 4-6, 6-3, 7-5 (Jelena is shown during the match and with the hardware--the Maud Watson Trophy--afterward, with Maria applauding in the background).

    Maria broke Jelena's serve in the 2nd game of the 3rd set, and then held her own to take a 3-0 lead. But Jelena won the next three games, broke Maria again in the 11th game to take a 6-5 lead, and then served out the match.

    Jelena said: "When I started I was a bit slow and not feeling the ball well, but as the match went on I became the player I am, the one that gave me all these results this year. I suddenly started fighting, got into the match and pulled through. I was losing the whole time, but I was just fighting point by point." WTA story

    Maria was playing in her third tourney since a 7 week layoff due to a shoulder injury which had plagued her since the beginning of the season. Her shoulder seems to be better: although she hit 7 double faults in the match, she also fired 8 aces.
    Maria said: "I can only take good things from the match. I lost the edge in the second set when I was up and [Jelena] took advantage of it, but all in all it was a good week. It was a good performance from both of us.
    "I think I've improved tremendously; I am a much better grass court player than four matches ago. Coming into the week my goal was to play five matches, so I couldn't be more pleased. I asked to play five matches and I did."

    It was the second match of the day for both players. Earlier, in the rain-delayed semifinals, Jelena defeated 25-year-old 8th-seeded # 31 Mara Santangelo from Cavalese, Italy, 6-1, 7-5; in the other semi Maria defeated 22-year-old 5th-seeded # 21 Marion Bartoli of France (residence: Geneva, Switzerland) 7-5, 6-0.

    Jelena is actually ranked # 3 this week, the highest rank of her career, after reaching the semis at Roland Garros. But the previous week's rankings are used to determine seeds, and those ranks are usually used on these pages so they will match the drawsheets.

    All-terrain: Jelena is now 5-5 in WTA singles finals. She also won the titles this year at Auckland (hardcourt), Charleston (green clay), and Rome (red clay); this is her first chlorophyll court crown.
    2006 US Open and 2004 Wimbledon champion Maria is now 15-6 in WTA singles finals. Maria still leads Jelena 3-1 in career matches; all of their meetings have been three setters (including their previous meeting, the 2005 Birmingham final, which Maria won 6-2, 4-6, 6-1) except a match in Beijing in 2004 from which Jelena retired due to injury.

    In the Barcelona final on Saturday, 28 year old 6th seeded # 61 Meghann Shaughnessy from Scottsdale, Arizona defeated 22 year old # 104 Edina Gallovits of Romania (residence: Atlanta, Georgia), 6-3, 6-2 (the photo of Meghann after match point is the first to escape from Barcelona this week).

    Meghann and Edina had never before met on the field of combat. Meghann said: "I went into the final not knowing what to expect. The key today was my serve, and dictating play from the baseline. If I gave her too much time [Edina] would have run me around...
    "I always just play one match at a time, because the competition is so tough these days it doesn't matter what you did yesterday or last week. Even though I only lost one set this week, every one was very close, and I'm just really happy. I feel more confident about my game." WTA story

    Edina said: "I came out and played well, and it was close until 3-all but then [Meghann] stepped it up. I had a point for 3-1 in the first set but I just didn't use my chances. I made a few easy mistakes and just wasn't aggressive enough."

    Meghann, whose career high ranking is # 11, is now 6-4 in WTA singles finals, and has 15 doubles titles as well. Edina was playing in her 1st WTA singles final; she has won 12 singles and 8 doubles titles in ITF play.

    The 4-week chlorophyll court season begins this week at Birmingham, followed by Eastbourne and s'Hertengobosch next week, and then the Wimbledon fortnight.

    Birmingham is the tourney that may have the lowest total prize $ to # of players ratio of the WTA Tour. The 56 players in the main draw (and 24 more who lost in qualifying) are there to get some time in playing on grass to prepare for Wimbledon, more than for the $200,000 prize money. Next week at Eastbourne, the last week before Wimbledon, there will be about half as many players, and over 3 times as much prize money.

    Barcelona is a new tourney in 2007, on red clay.

On Monday, June 11, 2007 at Birmingham, 2004 & 2005 tourney champ and top seed Maria Sharapova met the press... On the practice courts, the other most prominent Nike Princess, 3rd-seeded Daniela Hantuchova, talked to Maria about her experiments with unorthodox and exotic grips... As she practiced, Maria thought That Daniela is so funny -- but stuck to her usual kinda sorta Eastern racquet-hand attachment system... Also on Monday, Maria posed for some pleasing pretty poolside pics...

    Maria said: "Considering I didn't have a lot of time to practice, I thought it went well. You can't expect yourself to go out and hit winners left, right and center."

    About her 3rd round opponent, Tamira Paszek, Maria said: "It will be a tough match. I actually saw her play during Roland Garros. She gave Justine [Henin] a hard time and I could see she has a lot of talent. She's young and will go into the match with not a lot to lose, so it will be important for me to go for my shots and not give her a chance to dictate the points from the beginning."

    Jelena said: "In the first set I was struggling a bit and making a lot of errors. But in the second set I started to find my rhythm. Overall I'm happy with my performance, especially as it's my first match on grass after the clay court season...
    "I like it here on the grass. I think because I hit the ball pretty flat, the faster surfaces suit my game and I think I definitely have a great chance of doing well this week and then at Wimbledon."

    Marion had to play the 3rd set of her quarterfinal win over Daniela Hantuchova before taking on Maria. Marion led 5-4 and was serving for the 1st set when play was interrupted by an injury to a spectator who fell in the stands. When play resumed, Maria won 9 straight games to take the match.

    Marion did not blame the interruption for the loss. Marion said: "The problem was the short time between each match. To serve for the [1st set] against Maria, who is one of the best players on grass, was amazing.
    "I got tired and she went on to control the match. It is better for Maria to play the final. She is in better shape than me." PA Sport story

    The Birmingham trophy is a silver flower basket, valued at 20 guineas in 1884 (over $2000 US today), which was awarded that year to first Wimbledon ladies champion Maud Watson.
    Maude donated the basket to the Edgbaston Priory Club in 1934, and when the Birmingham tourney was created as a Wimbledon warm-up in 1982, it became the Maude Watson Trophy.
